ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BitPay, the world’s leading bitcoin payment processor, has added a NationBuilder website plug-in to allow communities to easily take bitcoin donations. NationBuilder powers sites in the areas of arts and culture, education, health and wellness, nonprofits and charities, political campaigns, and more. It brings together a website platform, financial tools, and broadcast communication in one system to make it easy for anyone to build community online.
BitPay’s app makes it easy for all NationBuilder customers to start accepting bitcoin donations through BitPay for free. BitPay is the first bitcoin payment processor to customize a donation app for NationBuilder customers. With BitPay’s app, NationBuilder users can seamlessly accept bitcoin donations and receive payout in their local currencies. Bitcoin donations can come from any part of the world, helping NationBuilder customers gain support from places they wouldn’t have been able to before. Users maintain control over how bitcoin donations are integrated with their NationBuilder campaigns, so the bitcoin option remains optional and flexible.
“Although NationBuilder serves a diverse client base, accepting bitcoin donations through BitPay can benefit everyone by eliminating transaction fees,” said Elizabeth Ploshay, who heads up the nonprofit outreach for BitPay. “We hope that our new plug-in will serve as a catalyst for similar platforms to give bitcoin payment options to their customers.”
“We are always trying to give our customers as many options as possible. BitPay made adding a bitcoin donation option easy, and our customers are the ones who benefit. This has given them a way to accept donations from passionate supporters regardless of geographic boundaries,” said Adriel Hampton, NationBuilder’s VP of Business Development.
BitPay is the global leader in bitcoin payment processing with offices throughout North America, Europe, and South America. The company has raised over $32 million from top investors including Index Ventures, Founders Fund, and Sir Richard Branson.
